The freshest craft beer in town is brewed in this industrial space inside Basel’s former electrical substation located at Voltaplatz. We brew our Volta Bräu beer after traditional methods and with strong passion. The brewpub combines an urban feel-good atmosphere with the attraction of the brewery – our home-brewed beers are tapped and served directly at the bar. The love for beer and the desire for variety and change is reflected in the selection.


No matter if you enjoy your craft beer during summer until late in the evening or try one of our specials in the garden during winter - we and our garden are there for you all year round. We unpack our cuddly blankets for the cooler nights and get out the fire bowl.

Food and drink

High-quality and homemade. That’s our philosophy. All our beers and signature drinks can be perfectly paired with items from our mouth-watering menu – such as our legendary pulled pork sandwich and the antipasti platter.


Your host

„Be yourself, because an original is worth more than a copy“.

Remo Rentsch throws the party for you at Volta Bräu. As a host, he puts a lot of emphasis on high quality, be it in gastronomy or in beer.
